Anyone got experience with the Schott 740 peacoat? How is sizing, does it run small or large? I am about 20" armpit to armpit, i reckon i should go for a small or a medium?

How much layering do you plan on doing? I'm a 21" p2p and the medium fit me well but was pretty big.

I should also note that the 740 doesn't come in S/M/L but rather chest size (38/40/42/etc). I would go with a 38 if I were you.

Thoughts on the new Self Edge pea coat?

Looks nice but it has no reason to cost $800. I just bought my Fidelity coat (satin-lined) for $150 shipped and it looks nearly identical.

As the saying goes, "A fool and his money..."

If you want a Schott, they may sell online, or if they don't, Gail will know who will. Gail is the answer person for the company on the message board.


Thank you for the help. A black peacoat made of kersey wool would be impossible to find, then?

I recently purchased a (I believe) 1950s US Navy Peacoat in 42L. The fit seems to be HUGE compared to what I've heard about sizing for a vintage peacoat. Does anyone else have a 40 that they might measure for me? I may have to try to sell my 42 and get a ~40R!

Thanks.

after reading through and searching I'm back to square one.

Is Schott or Sterlingwear the better buy here?

I'm around a 37" chest measured. I'll have to double check again tonight.
29/30" waist.

We do get snowy and cold winters so I'd like something warm.
I want a navy coat.

I picked up the new peacoat at Jcrew but might return it if I can find something of better quality. (will get a fit pic tonight)

suggestions?

I like the look of the Naval pea coats except I would definitely have to get it with new buttons.  I've just never been a fan of military buttons.

I would go with the Schott. The one I tried on was INSANELY warm (to the point that I had to buy the satin Fidelity). Also, the Sterlingwear doesn't have a vent in the back (which was a deal-breaker for me).

Thanks.

A size 42 vintage issue peacoat should measure about 22.25" or 22.50" pit to pit. A size 40 should measure about 21.25" or 21.50. They are made so there is enough room underneath for a sweater and still have ease of movement.

If you want a fitted peacoat, without room for a sweater, then buy a size smaller than your chest measurement. If your actual chest measurement is 42", then a size 40 vintage peacoat should give a relatively close fit--assuming you are of normal proportions and not in a skinny 17 or 18 year old body.

See the section on sizing in my article at the link below. This should tell you how to take the measurements of both chest and peacoat.

Not sure what these are neither but the Rag & Bone buttons are really nice, made in USA by http://www.waterburybutton.com/cart/pc/home.asp
